ebay 159 SW Roof bars fit saloon?

Im after some roof bars for my 159 saloon, I have found some used genuine SW roof bars (to fit SW without roof rails) on eBay. Would these fit onto a saloon too?

Checked the Thule website and the SW and saloon both use the same foot pack so I'm guessing it should be fine?

I think you'll find that the saloon roof is shorter than the estate. Something to do with one stopping the roof for a boot and one continuing the roof for a load area.

Pretty sure they're the same - I've got a pair of Thule bars for a SW and they clamp above the doors which are in pretty much the same place on saloons or SW

I have took the plunge! Will let you know if they fit as soon as the 8ft roof box comes flying off on the M5 !

Cant see any reason why they wouldn't fit, they get fixed in exactly the same location which is before the roof carries on/slopes down. Obviously the width of the car will be the same too. Will report back in a couple days!
